Revl Arc 4K Action Cam Uses Built-In Gimbal For Stabilized Video Capture

Action cameras are great, allowing you to record first-person view of high-speed action, so you can relieve your adventures over and over.  The Revl Arc does the same. Unlike other action cams, though, it comes with a built-in gimbal to ensure even the shakiest action is captured in a steady and enjoyable manner.

That’s right, no more editing your sports and adventure videos to remove some of the shakes post-production. And no more pairing your GoPro with a gimbal in a complicated setup to stabilize things, either. Instead, this thing does it all on its own, whether it sits on your helmet during skiing, on your handlebars while riding downhill, or on your surfboard while catching waves.

The Revl Arc uses electronic image stabilization to correct the pitch and yaw, while relying on the integrated gimbal to stabilize the roll, ensuring it captures your videos like no other action cams could. It’s quite the powerful action cam, too, with a 12-megapixel sensor that allows it to shoot 4K video at 30 fps and 1080p at 120 fps, along with onboard Bluetooth and WiFi for automatically streaming files to your phone. Aside from shooting videos, the camera also logs speed, rotation, altitude, and G-Force data, which it can automatically superimpose onto videos, so you can check out your stats while the action happens.

Features include a 150-degree field of view, waterproofing up to 3 meters, and a battery life of 1.5 hours (it’s swappable, so you can stock on backups). Oh yeah, the app comes with an AI mode that can automatically edit your videos to isolate highlights from the action to make it easier to share (and brag) about your activities on social media.

An Indiegogo campaign is currently running for the Revl Arc. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $399.

    If GoPro don’t start coming out with newer and more improved products then they will start to die a slow death. I like GoPros a lot, but there are similar cameras that are just as good for much less. The Revl Arc has got to be making GoPro nervous. The image stabilization from the gimbal is a great feature. It will lead to less cutting during video post-production. It will also give the video maker more to work with, so from a fan standpoint, this will be one of the best products to improve video quality to come out this year.

    It is not designed for pros though, it is designed to be easy for consumers to use. I love watching videos made with sports action cams on Youtube, and this camera will help even the average person to begin to create great videos that can compete with the larger companies such as Red Bull who are notorious for their high production values.

    The battery life of 1.5 hours will be enough for a lot of people, but I like that the battery can be swapped out easily. I can see some situations where I would definitely need more than 1.5 hours of record time. Instead of forcing you to buy new mounts, they have the adapter that makes this work with the GoPro mounts. I like this because they KNOW who their target market is and they are going after GoPro hard! Crowdsourced products like these are beginning to put a lot of pressure on larger companies and forcing them to adapt and evolve too which is good for consumers everywhere.

    Not a bad price at all for all the great features this camera offers. I’m nervous to update all my cameras, TVs etc to 4K though because before we know it, there is going to be something better out there. I’m sure there are others who can relate. My son is always recording himself, his friends and our family. He has some pretty amazing skills when it comes to making home videos for us. I’m shopping around for something new to surprise him with. He’s a really active guy, doing everything from football to skateboarding and even skydiving. Definitely a rebel. I want to get him something that can capture his intense moments so he can cherish them forever. My only concern is the battery life. Is it short or is that typical because of the quality of video? Thanks.
